    The team were very hospitable and friendly! They were very skilled and had excellent marine knowledge. They had us well prepared with our windbreakers. The experience itself was absolutely fantastic! I would recommend it to anyone, we saw amazing things. We were able to take fantastic photos and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Gliding along the bays and ocean was fabulous! We were lucky to be blessed with a beautiful day! The driver had been given permission by his boss to take us so very close to the dolerite cliffs called the blade! Magical! Spectacular! We also saw an albatross! A rare sight so near to the coast. We continued to view the seal Colony on Tasman Island playfully arguing about the funniest spot in the rocks. Comical! Then more beautiful natural coast towards Eaglehawk Neck.. on the way we were spoilt by getting very close to the pinnacle of Rock called the Candlestick some people climb! A magical day I’ll always remember!

    Prepare yourself for a wild ride! The coastal scenery is absolutely stunning. We loved the peeks into mysterious caves, the soaring cliffs, and spying lazy seals and swooping sea birds. We were not expecting such a heart-thumping adventure upon the giant swells of the Tasman sea. But, we felt safe and enjoyed every minute... even the cold and wet ones.
